This visit was arranged at short notice because of a change in itinerary due to the federal government shutdown of the national parks. The volunteer historical staff were enthusiastic in relating the history of the fort, in particular, describing the events relating to the Fetterman Massacre which occurred in 1866. After exploring the remains of the fort, we were shown the location in the hills behind the fort where the attacks had taken place and we were treated to an engrossing account of the events and given a demonstration of how the fort soldiers would prime and fire their weaponry at the time. It was an interesting visit to this historic site.
